Land Steward Work Day

September 10 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Land Stewards & Restorationists — We Need YOU!

Interested in helping restore and maintain ALNC’s prairie, pond, and woodlands? Join us the second Saturday of the month, April through October, to help control invasive species, seed with native plants, get dirty, and have some fun! Volunteer work days will focus mainly on land management and other projects as needed. Work days may be cancelled or planned activities modified due to inclement weather.

Pre-registration is not required but strongly encouraged.

Here are just a few Land Steward projects:

Cut honeysuckle and other unwanted brush
Mulch trails
Pull garlic mustard and other invasive species
Transplant wildflowers
Collect and label seeds
Garden work as needed
Pick up litter/trash

Volunteers should meet at 10am outside the West Entry doors, near the Children’s shack, for an orientation. Work days typically take place rain or shine, although they may be modified or cancelled depending on the project and conditions. Basic tools and supplies will be provided. Please bring water bottles and wear work clothes appropriate for the weather. Limited access to facilities for restrooms and water refills will be available.

These work projects involve physical tasks geared towards older kids and adults. Younger children are welcome to attend/observe at the discretion of their guardian. Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Groups of 5 or more should inquire with alnc@aldoleopoldnaturecenter.org to ensure we are able to accommodate your group.

Please contact us at (608) 221-0404 or at alnc@aldoleopoldnaturecenter.org for more information.
